Some relief in Grande Riviere


The trinidad Guardian / RALPH BANWARIE

Relief, in the form of mattresses, cots, water containers, brooms, portable tents, hoses, basic foodstuff and water, was distributed to affected villagers of Grande Riviere yesterday afternoon.

Soldiers from the T&T Regiment distributed the relief items under the watchful eyes of Toco/Sangre Grande MP Glenda Jennings-Smith and councillor Terry Rondon.

T&TEC crews, led by senior supervisor Wazir Mohammed, also worked all day and were able to return electricity to the homes of villagers. Villagers welcomed the return of power, saying it would at least help them in the clean-up operations.

Some villagers whose homes were flooded out were also assisted by soldiers in their clean-up exercises yesterday but they were still unable to re-occupy their homes and continued to stay with friends and family who were not severely affected by the disaster.

But at least one villager who lost everything in his home did not accept supplies.

Keron Jones said he has four children and an eight-day-old baby and getting a mattress and hamper was not sufficient for him as what he really needed was shelter and replacement of his furniture and appliances, all of which were destroyed by the flood waters on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, villagers at Matelot remained marooned as the two bridges that connect Matelot to other districts were yet to be repaired and the roadway remained blocked by debris left by landslides.

Minister of Works and Transport, Rohan Sinanan, and Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, Kazim Hosein, visited the affected villagers yesterday and promised to have the bridges and roadway repaired as soon as possible.

Jennings-Smith and Rondon later called for an Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management to be established in Toco so that disaster in these regions could be addressed immediately.

They were both satisfied with the relief supplies brought in but added that would only go a short way. They called on citizens to render some help to the affected villagers in both Grande Riviere and Matelot.

Sinanan later promised to hold consultations on the establishment of an ODPM office in Toco and also to provide emergency shelters.

WASA officials promised to restore a pipe-bourne supply to the villagers before Sunday.

The disaster struck the villages of Matelot and Grande Riviere around 3 am on Wednesday, when villagers reported experiencing heavy rains, thunder and lightning.

The weather felled trees, which brought down electricity and cables lines and caused massive landslides which blocked the roadway with debris and marooned villagers.
